Athletics - Mountview offers a wide variety of athletic opportunities to our students. Announcements will be made over the PA and at lunch regarding tryout days and times. When possible, tryout times will be posted on the "This Week's Events" page and on the "Today's Announcements" page. Tryouts, practices, and games/meets run later than 4:15, so students would need to make arrangements for their own transportation home. There is a $120 athletic fee per student, per sport, (with the exception of JV track which costs $70). This payment is due to Mr. McCarthy once your child makes the team and is required prior to the start of regular practices. In order to participate in sports at Mountview, students must have an athletic eligibility form filled out and on file with the school. Students need a new form each year.
In the fall we offer boys' soccer, girls' soccer, field hockey, and cross country (click here for Mr. Paradis' track information page). Tryouts for these teams happen right within the first few days of school, as teams need to be set for early games.
In the winter, we offer boys' and girls' basketball. These tryouts generally begin around mid to late November. Again, students will need to listen carefully to announcements for tryout days and times. We will do our best to keep these times posted on our website as well. Games begin in January, usually right after the December break, and run through February vacation. Playoffs take place after February vacation.
In the spring, we offer baseball, softball, and track. Tryouts for these sports begin in late March or early April, and games begin when the fields are dry enough for play.

Creative Writing ClubThe Creative Writing Club is open to all students grade 6-8. The club meets weekly to write and share writing - all genres are covered, and students have the opportunity to try their hand at different styles and get feedback from others. In years past we've participated in lots of writing contests, learned about online publishing and attended the St. John's Writing Conference in March. Every week, year after year, students are excited to share their written words, as well as hear from others. We are a happy community of writers who are always excited to have someone new join our group!
School Musical - Each year, PTA sponsors a schoolwide musical production. This year, auditions will take place sometime in December after school. Prior to those audition dates, students will be given information on what to do to prepare for the audition as well as a specific audition time. Play practices will begin in January and run through the production dates in March. This is a big commitment on the part of the participants, but it is a lot of fun! We will also need responsible students to sign up for backstage crew. We will put a call out at lunch in early February for those interested in helping out backstage.
Alden Research Lab Group - This is a great club for students interested in science. Mr. Boisselle facilitates this group which traditionally meets in the spring. Listen for announcements for meeting dates and times.
Ski Club - Ski Club is run by Mr. John Boyce. Pamphlets with information will be available to students in November or December. In ski club, students take buses each Monday between December and February breaks (6 Mondays in total) to Wachusett Mountain to ski and snowboard. Students are picked up at Mountview at 3:00pm and return to Mountview at 7:00pm for parent pick up. Please note that this program is not run or sponsored by Mountview Middle School.
Performing Music Groups - Mountview has several performance-based music groups, including Select Chorus, String Ensemble, and Wind Ensemble. These groups rehearse during after school. Rehearsal schedules are posted outside the music classrooms and will be updated as often as possible on our website. Students are also offered opportunities to perform and compete at the Quabbin Valley Music Festival and through Central Districts.
Dance Classes - Dance classes are offered by Paul Lamoureaux beginning in September. Information is mailed to parents in August regarding these classes.
